A short life lived with gusto
There’s no tomorrow
Like the throes of our passion
I’ll love you until the end

Love the line ‘a short life lived with gusto’. Everyone should try to aspire to that.
You are right, we never know if this day will be our last.
“…lived with gusto…” Love it.
Thank you Martha. This one came out of these small yellow butterflies that see to fly around the cottonfields by my house. Inevitably they tend to fly across the road and get hit by the passing cars. Needless to say, their deaths are not of the natural sort most often. 😦
We don’t see too many butterflies lately, but we’ve seen a lot of hummingbirds by our house.
We actually have both right now, but the butterflies won’t be around for long…sadly.
